Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Cupcakes & Ice Cream Maker Giveaway

Today marks the one year birthday of Manifest Vegan!

I can’t even explain how fun and rewarding this past year has been. You guys are the best, seriously!

I have over 1000  subscribers to my feed already… thank all you so much! I look forward to many more years and many more recipes. But for now, I’ll spare you anymore of this mushy talk and get straight to the presents!

In honor of turning one, I (and many readers who so kindly chimed in) have decided that a little giveaway is in order- you know, to say “thanks”, for keeping this thing alive. I wanted to give you guys a chance to get a present that I totally want for myself… because, isn’t that what birthdays are all about?

I have become an ice cream making fanatic lately… especially since Autumn has arrived. Makes perfect sense, right? Although, I am using an ancient rock-salt-type-bucket-thing that makes a helluva lotta noise and a pretty incredible mess.

This sleek little Cuisinart (pictured below) seems like it would be waaay better than what I’m using; and it’s red!

Mine’s the color of a 1984 apple computer. With a brown bowl.

I have also included an easy recipe for some party-worthy cupcakes…. that will go nicely with champagne ice cream. Oh hell yes.

Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Cupcakes- Vegan & Gluten Free

makes 10

Strawberry Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vegan granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup very small chopped strawberries
  • extra sorghum flour

Cream Frosting Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups vegan confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tbsp vegan margarine
  • 4 tbsp almond milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a standard sized muffin pan with 10 paper liners or lightly grease and flour the pan.

  1. In large bowl, mix together sugar, olive oil, vanilla, salt and baking powder.
  2. In smaller bowl, sift together sorghum flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, and xanthan gum.
  3. Gradually add flours to olive oil and sugar mixture. Stir in almond milk until everything is well combined.
  4. Add vinegar 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition.
  5. In small bowl, lightly toss strawberry pieces with a little sorghum flour to coat. Fold strawberries into batter to evenly distribute throughout.
  6. Drop a little less than 1/4 cup of batter in each baking cup.
  7. Bake about 30 minutes in preheated oven.
  8. Let cool and then make frosting.

To make frosting:

Combine frosting ingredients by hand and then use an electric mixer on high speed to make the frosting fluffy. Keep chilled before use to avoid melting.

Pipe onto cupcakes after they have thoroughly cooled. Chill briefly and drizzle with melted chocolate. Enjoy!

Store in fridge…

Here’s the deets on the machine [from Amazon]:

Cuisinart ICE-20R 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet Maker, Red

Creating up to 1-1/2 quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, or frozen drinks at home takes only about 20 minutes with this electric appliance, and salt and ice are not needed. After the machine’s chilling chamber has been in the freezer for about eight hours the liquid between its walls becomes thoroughly frozen. The chamber then goes atop the power base, the unit’s paddle goes into the chamber, the transparent top is locked in place, and the machine is turned on. Ingredients go into the chamber through an opening in the top as the paddle turns. The chamber chills the ingredients to whatever consistency is desired–though dense treats are hard to make because the paddle churns in air.

Chocolate chips, chopped fruit, nuts, and other special ingredients can be added toward the end. The nonstick chamber makes cleanup a snap. Storing it in the freezer ensures a frozen confection is only 20 to 40 minutes away when the mood strikes. The machine measures 10 inches in diameter and 15 inches high and weighs 9-1/2 pounds. It carries a three-year limited warranty. A detailed instruction booklet including many recipes comes included. –Fred Brack

Thanks, everyone, for being awesome!

PS: If you haven’t yet subscribed to Manifest Vegan (“subscribe” button in the upper right hand corner), or aren’t following me on facebook or twitter… it would be extra birthday-tastic if you would do so today (or any day, really)!

I know I’d love and use it because I currently borrow my neighbor’s like WAY more often than is socially acceptable. But theirs is white, so this would be better.

  52. Allison DeYenno says:

    I LOVE mint chocolate chip – that has been my fav forever. BUT I really really wish I could figure out how to make “sweet cream” ice cream. This ice cream shop near my house when I was little made it. I think that Cold Stone has something similar too… mmm….

  53. Jes says:

    I’m pretty sure my favorite flavor is anything with chocolate in it, but I’m really digging pumpkin ice cream right now!

  54. Rachel says:

    I would love this ice cream maker! I started making ice cream this summer, but I am still lost in the woods of the bowl in the freezer and the brisk stirring.
    Oh gosh, my favorite ice cream flavor? Something caramel. Dulce de leche? Sea salt caramel? I made a fabulous vanilla-peach-caramel-bourbon ice cream a few weeks ago.

  55. Love your blog! It’s become one of my absolute favorites. Favorite everyday ice cream flavor, vanilla bean and mango. Favorite speciality (I was surprised and happy to see this as so many people’s choice) PUMPKIN!!!

  56. Heather says:

    Wow! That cupcake looks amazing. I feel like I can taste it just from the picture.

    Also, that ice-cream maker is H-O-T.

    BTW my favorite ice cream flavor is grape. Probably sounds weird, but it’s amazing.

  57. Roxann says:

    I haven’t made ice cream since the old “crank” days! My favorite flavor is rum raisin…..yum.

  58. Maira says:

    Hi!

  61. K says:

    Mmm, ice cream! I love anything super chocolatey and rich!
    Congrats on your first year!! :)
    -K

  62. Shirley says:

    How nice that you are willing to send anywhere. My favourite ice cream used to be Rocky Road, but as I haven’t seen any in over 7 years, it is now vanilla. It tastes good with banana slices or chocolate sauce or whatever comes to mind!

  63. valerie says:

    helloooo delicious cupcakes… want!

    my favorite ice cream flavor is strawberry with some chocolately goodness mixed in. (thus my love for the cupcake recipe!)

  64. Holly says:

    I would love to have this to make all kinds of dairy-free ice creams. My favorite ice cream flavor is peanut butter :)

  65. My favorite flavors of ice cream are a toss up between rocky road (which is not veganiz-able thanks to Dandies and Sweet and Saras) and cinnamon roll!

    I would love to take this ice cream maker out for a spin and veganize some childhood favorites!

  66. Michelle says:

    Happy Birthday – I ♥ Manifest Vegan :-) As for favorite ice cream… at the moment either Purely Decadent Mocha Almond Fudge or Almond Dream Praline Crunch. Too hard to pick just one.

  67. Amelia says:

    Oh I would love that beautiful machine! I’m a huge fan of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and can’t wait make my own vegan version some day! PS. I love this blog – happy birthday!

  68. Marcee says:

    I love ice cream wayyyy too much to choose a favorite, but one that I think could be a favorite is one I’ve had an idea for, and would totally make if I won this ice cream maker: Bluberry Cheesecake!
    Thanks for having this awesome giveaway!

    • Michelle says:

      Purely Decadent makes a blueberry cheesecake soy ice cream – its pretty tasty!

  69. Joanne says:

    My favorite ice cream is cookies n cream…but I haven’t had it in forever since I became vegan. I bought one from rice dream but it’s not that great and it’s hard as a rock :( I don’t know how long I’ll last without my fav ice cream though so watch out if I catch anyone with it, lol.
    If I had the Cuisinart ice cream maker however I might just be able to create something to settle me down!

  70. Bobbie says:

    Oh, I would LOVE one of these! Normally I would say that boring, plain vanilla is my favorite. But lately I’ve been on a mocha fudge ice cream kick and it would be awesome to make my own :)

    PS. Thanks for the chance to enter!

  71. Summer says:

    Those look awesome! But what does the xanthum gum do? I’ve never seen that in a cupcake recipe before. I’ve seen it in the store and never known what to do with it. Thanks!

    My favorite ice cream flavor is a toasted coconut almond chip ice cream from…So Delicious, I think? It’s amazing. It tastes like an almond joy bar, which my vegan boyfriend misses so much from his omni days. I’d love to be able to make a version of it for him, for much less than the millions of dollars those little containers cost.

    • allyson says:

      Hi Summer!

      Good question… xanthan is used as a binder for Gluten Free goodies.. in this recipe, it more or less holds everything together.

      Most likely, you won’t see it listed as an ingredient in non gluten-free recipes [and even many gf recipes don’t require xanthan). :) I like to use it in combination with a few different gf flours to make a sort of “all purpose blend”

      ~ Allyson

  72. Laurel says:

    Ooh I love red appliances. I almost bought a red Vita-mix the other day but couldn’t tell if it was candy apple red or muddy red or orange red whatever; besides ice cream makers are much more fun who am I kidding? I started to say that my favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip only it’s not. My favorite has always been French Vanilla Bean with Bing Cherries but I’ve only ever had that at a Swenson’s ice cream parlor in Texas. It sure would be nice to give that a shot although vegan caramel with fudge, pistachio? I think you and Mr. Manifest Vegan may have started “The Neverending Story” of ice cream flavor/experimentation. I wonder if Michael Ende would mind?

  73. Joe says:

    I REALLY love Pumpkin ice cream. It’s a shame that I can only get it one time of the year, and would really love to try to make my own.

    Thank you for having this fantastic contest!

  74. Kat says:

    oooh how pretty :) it would match my red Kitchen Aid! I love love love cookies and cream ice cream… and an ice cream maker would be great for practicing a vegan, gluten-free recipe ;)

  75. Heather says:

    I have been wanting one of these for years! First on the list: coconut milk mint chip ice cream. Num!

  76. Danielle R. says:

    Oooh, I want it, I want it!!!! :) I would love to be able to make my own vegan ice-cream. My fav flavor is the purely decadent coconut milk mint chip ice cream…oh and the chocolate peanut butter swirl which CHUNKS of peanut butter….*drool*

  77. Hayley says:

    I’d love this little machine so I can make my own Peanut Butter soy ice cream…YUM!

  79. Valerie says:

    The absolutely best ice cream I ever had was made w/my sisters ice cream maker (I don’t have one, myself) & was from a Taste of Home cookbook: blueberry cheesecake ice cream. Totally worth the calories!

  80. Sayward says:

    I’ve been wanting to try my hand at homemade ice cream! My favorite flavor is anything involving [vegan] caramel. NOM!

  81. Cheryl says:

    I totally want this I have been looking at ones on the CSN website.. My favortie ice cream flavor is SALTED CARAMEL!!!

  82. Christine Banks says:

    OMG, I would be able to make all the fabulous vegan ice cream recipes I see on the interwebs and drool over! My favorite flavor is mint chocolate chip, or chocolate peanut butter (you can’t compare the 2, apples and oranges people). I want to make pumpkin ice cream in honor of fall!

  83. Mo says:

    Such a beautiful color! My favorite flavor is cherry chocolate chunk.

  84. Clarissa says:

    Wow, just came across your website and love it! Can’t wait to try your recipes. Our fav icecream has to be Turtle Mountain’s Organic So Delicious Dulce de Leche but can’t seem to find it anywhere in Oz anymore…so would love to make it ourselves with that superb looking icecream maker on offer. Happy belated blog birthday too!

  85. Ann says:

    Oh I am so excited about this giveaway! And thanks for sharing that cupcake recipe! Vegan cupcakes are going to take over the world ;) My favorite ice cream flavor is probably chocolate or chocolate mint. Mmm :)

  86. Mallory says:

    mmmm… vegan icecream :) Your blog is amazing. It was one of my first vegan blogs that I stumbled across. Your baking creations are awesome. Our favorite flavor of ice cream is for sure peanut butter! Happy Blog Birthday!

  87. chyk says:

    I love ice cream! I just need to be able to make my own. My current fave is Dule De Leche from Soy Delicious,

  88. Klee says:

    Awesome, my favorite flavor is coffee, but chocolate chip cookie dough is a close second. Still, the combination of coffee and ice cream is unbeatable.

  89. Katherine says:

    Shiny appliance yum! My favorite flavor is mint chip. Manifest Vegan is awesome!

  90. Cartercam says:

    Oooh pretty ice cream maker! My favorite flavor is mint chip :)

  91. Stephanie says:

  93. Cris Sanchez says:

    happy anniversary! my fav flav is green tea! orrrrr mint.

  94. David says:

    Ahhhhhh! these cupcakes look so delicious! And, the ice cream maker. Awesome. My favorite would definitely be dark chocolate and orange. Magnificent!

  95. Jessica says:

    This looks awesome. My husband and I love mint chocolate chip, and Neil also likes Stephen Colbert’s flavor of Ben and Jerry’s called “Americone Dream.”

  96. Becca says:

    Oooh. I actually was just sitting down to find a good peanut butter cookie recipe so I could add pb cookie dough to the banana ice cream I’m making! I wasn’t having much luck, so I took a break to go through my fav food blogs. What a weird coincidence!

    We have Wheeler’s Vegan Scoop book, and I’ve been slowly making every recipe in there … with only a ice cream ball. Have you seen these? You have to shake them to make ice cream? Fun for the first 2 minutes, not so much for the next 20.

    BTW, my favorite ice cream is coffee or vanilla. Snooze.

  97. Susan says:

    Great blog!!! This is the cutest ice cream maker I’ve ever seen. Would love to try to make something with strawberries, chocolate, and nuts. My favorites!!

  98. I have this exact ice cream machine, so if I happen to win, please choose again, as I’m sure there is a lucky person out there dying for it. I just wanted to stop by and comment and let you know that I recently made Chocolate Espresso Ice Cream (gluten free, dairy free, egg free) and it came out great! Here’s the link to my recipe.

    Chocolate Espresso Ice Cream

  99. maxine says:

    congratulations on the blog birthday!
    oh how i lust for a fancy ice cream maker!
    i absolutely luuuurve peanut butter caramel ice cream but its pretty rare to get it down here in australia.
    <3

  100. Kaeci says:

    Every time I’m searching for the best recipes,
    which is probably all the time I tend to find ice cream recipes.
    So in love with the ingredients and overall guilty pleasure
    I convince myself of making it. As I scroll down the procedure, the words
    “view ice cream maker instruction manual” always tends to catch me,
    ruining all plans of that amazing ice cream day planned, this being one of them.
    I need* this ice cream maker, it’s designed for me! My favorite ice cream is obviously gold medal ribbon from baskin Robbins — perfect blend of chocolate&caramel. Oh& bluebell is there best!

  101. Michelle says:

    Happy Anniversary!

    I’ve been lusting after an ice cream maker for so long! Pumpkin is my favorite flavor, but my roommate found a recipe for Thai iced tea ice cream and we’ve been dying to try it…

  102. Amelia says:

    Oh, would I ever love that ice cream machine.

    My favourite flavour is… chocolate! But not just chocolate. A lovely, rich dark chocolate ice cream, studded with chocolate covered cashews, pieces of home-made brownies, a few dollops of peanut butter, and the occasional spoonful of cheesecake batter. You can only make this yourself, and since my mum has the ice cream machine and I don’t, I rarely get to make it! It’s the tragedy of getting older, moving out, and not having the luxuries of… you know, your parents providing everything. Such are my first world problems, haha.

  103. Jillian says:

    I can imagine this machine whipping up my favorite homemade recipe, Banana Lavender with coconut. I’d love it!

  104. mackenzie says:

    congrats on the blog-o-birthday! those strawberries ‘n’ cream cupcakes look fantastic! my favorite ice cream is cookies ‘n’ cream. cannot. get. enough.

  105. Joi says:

    I would love that beautiful machine!

    My favorite is just about anything chocolate and if you throw a little coffee in there…. well, that would be just awesome!

  106. Lauren says:

    congrats on turning 1! i check this blog every day hoping for new delicious and healthy vegan recipes and i’m never let down :)

    I never actually liked dairy ice cream because it made me so sick to my stomach but i’m crazy for italian ice and vegan ice cream, especially this flavour they have at a local shop – espresso soy ice cream with crushed up oreo cookies. Super yummy!

  107. Caitlin says:

    i would LOVE the icecream maker! my husband and i love chocolate and peanut butter icecream!

  108. Iris says:

    Ooh so much fun! I love all ice cream, but my favorite is vanilla with something else in it, like chocolate chip chunks.

  109. Mama Cupcake says:

    Happy Blog Birthday!!! I just started my blog this week….I can’t want to have my first anniversary. Of course I would love to win this ice cream maker! (thank you for the giveaway). My favorite flavor is rocky road!

  110. Christine says:

    Those cupcakes look delicious.

    Oh I would love an ice cream maker! Good vegan ice cream is so hard to find! My favorite flavor would have to be caramel and pear sorbet that a local ice cream shop sells. It is to die for!

    Happy Birthday and I look forward to more wonderful posts and recipes!

    I love the fresh taste of lemon ice cream (I used to eat this in France) and the comforting taste of vanilla ice cream (preferably with apple pie)!

  122. Kurt says:

    Thanks to Vegansaurus for linking to your site: subscribed!

    I <3 the peanut butter zig zag flavor from purely decadent, because peanut butter + chocolate + ice cream = bliss.

  123. Catharine says:

  127. Mia says:

    I would love an ice cream maker! My fave flavor right now is Tempt chocomint :)

  128. Melissa says:

    I want an ice cream maker! My favourite flavour is strawberry, hands down…with chunks of fresh strawberries in it.

    I just bought a maker from a thrift store, but it was missing parts, so your contest came at the right time.

    Happy Anniversary!!

  129. Amanda T. says:

    I would love to win an ice cream maker since I had to return one I ordered because I of being laid off. My favorite ice cream flavor is cookie dough.

  130. Erin says:

    I would love this handy little ice cream maker. My favorite flavor is coffee with vegan Oreos, based on my old love of Baskin’ Robbins’ Jamocha Cookies n’ Creme.

  131. Jenny says:

    I would love the ice cream maker!!!!!!!!!!! Favorite flavor would have to be chocolate, but I always like something crunchy in my ice cream too… chocolate with nuts?

  132. Sawn says:

    Hola! My favorite flavor is chocolate!
    But if i got a ice cream maker it be filled with avocados!
    I’ve always wanted to try this avocado flavor from good eats on their website! :D
    Its quite vegan but the comments say use coconut milk! xD Yum!

  133. Danielle says:

    I’ve wanted an ice cream maker for the longest time, so I would love to be entered into the contest–who cares if fall and winter are one their way? I’m sitting in 90 degree weather right now. My favorite flavor would have to be green tea with red bean paste on top. Yummm….

  134. Susie D. says:

    This ice cream maker is soooo pretty! It has been on my amazon wish list all summer. But I just couldn’t justify it. I have all kinds of homemade ice cream recipes bookmarked though! I especially love any ice cream with STUFF in it, like cookies, candies, or swirls of yummy goodness.

  135. Katie says:

    happy birthday to you! hooray for ice cream makers. my favorite flavor is mint chip!

  136. Valerie says:

    (ps the cupcakes look so amazing I might try that recipe when my birthday comes around : )

  138. RachelBethany says:

    I’m torn between loving mocha almond fudge and peanut butter ice cream. I wish I had an ice cream maker so I could try the nutella ice cream recipe I see floating around! Congrats on one year!

    Those cupcakes look INCREDIBLE.

    My favorite ice cream flavor is mint cookie :-)

  140. Amanda says:

    At our new house there is 2 big peach trees, what a coincidence that my favorite homemade ice cream flavor is peach.I don’t have that nifty ice cream machine but it is on my wish list. Once I get a new ice cream maker then there will be plenty of peach ice cream to go around.

  141. Meghan says:

    Congrats on the big ONE! I’ll be officially subscribing today as a present to you. =)
    I love a little vegan ice cream treat now and again, but I’m disappointed that I can’t find some of the less traditional flavours. If I had an ice cream maker (oh, dream come true), the first thing I would do is make my favourite ice cream flavour – green tea! Yum!!

  142. Erin says:

    I love red, and I love ice cream, my favorite flavour is plain ole’ vanilla. I would love to win this, so I could try out all the fabulous flavours I’ve seen.

  143. carmen says:

    would lOVE the ice cream maker. :) my fave ice cream flavor is pistachio!

  144. Michelle says:

    It’s funny but when I wasn’t vegan I wasn’t a big ice cream eater… but now that I am vegan and finding all sorts of amazing vegan ice cream recipes it has inspired me to look for an icecream maker when I am out shopping at secondhand stores! I haven’t found one yet and so would LOVE to win this one.
    My fav flavour would have to be anything with CHOCOLATE in it!!!

  145. Morgan says:

    Happy anniversary to you! Love your posts :] I’ve wanted an ice cream maker for so long but I just can’t seem to fit it in my budget. My favorite ice cream flavor would have to be chocolate! Anything chocolate!

  149. Georgianne says:

    I’ve been following your blog for awhile, but I wish I had found it a year ago! Happy birthday:D
    This is a great giveaway- I’d love to throw in my name and I have to agree with an earlier post, I do miss Ben & Jerry’s flavors. My husband and I both agree, though- Peanut Butter Zig Zag by Purely Decadent is awesome

  150. Aleesah says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and I’m always impressed by your recipes. They’re so inventive and beautiful (not to mention tasty!).

    I’d love to win this ice cream maker… I’ve been dying to make coconut milk ice cream and don’t have the spare cash to buy one right now. My favorite flavor is mint chocolate chip, but that was a tough choice. I’m a plain vanilla kinda girl, too. :)

  151. Cait says:

    my favorite ice cream flavor is coconut with chunks of chocolate covered coffee toffee-homemade in a local store and DELICIOUS!!!

  152. MeowMix says:

  155. Katrina says:

    Your cupcakes look amazing! My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. I want it now…

  156. T says:

    (Don’t enter me for the ice cream maker though, i live too far away.)

  157. Beau-Robert says:

    I’ve always wanted to try my hand at vegan ice cream! My favorite flavor of ice cream is Earl Grey for sure.

  158. Kayci says:

    so hard to choose…. but i think i have to go w/ my pre-vegan favorite, baskin robbins’ jamoca almond fudge. i need to find a vegan version!

  159. Sana says:

    Your Cupcake look great!! I love coffee ice cream.

  160. Paige C says:

  162. Kelsey says:

    Hi! I’d love to enter this contest! I just found your site recently but fell in love with your delicious recipes and oh.. the glorious glorious food photography! Oh, it is also so delicious.

    My favorite ice cream flavor…. I do love green tea ice cream, but am torn between that and butter pecan. (I’ve yet to find a nice vegan butter pecan ice cream though!)

    Happy blog birthday!

  165. Matt B says:

    Hi Allyson:

    My favorite flavor has to be mint chocolate chip but it should always be that unnatural green color with square chocolate chunks! It is just doesn’t taste the same without it (although Soy Dream is sooo darn good!) 1000 and counting! Take care.

  166. Natasha says:

    I’d like to enter! My favorite ice cream flavor was in my pre-vegan days at a place where they served only homemade ice cream. I had “Ukrainian Rose Petal”. It even had tiny bits of edible rose petals mixed in. Since I’ve only had it once its forever placed as number one in my ice cream memories.

  167. Michelle says:

    I’d love an ice-cream maker! My current favourite is peach but I’ve also been a longtime fan of just simple vanilla.

  168. Kim says:

    Well I have to enter this contest! Ice cream is my favorite treat and narrowing down my fav flavor is hard but I think chocolate and peanut butter is the best! Have never made vegan ice cream in an ice cream maker YET! Congrats on 1000, that is amazing! The skies the limit!
    xoxo

  169. Christine says:

    How fun! It’s gotta be cookies ‘n’ cream. Oh, the cookies.

  184. Ang I. says:

    My favorite ice cream flavor growing up was black cherry, with butter pecan being a close second. Now that I’m ‘all grown up’ I would love to try to make some fancier creations like Nutella Ice Cream. yummy!

  189. Cat says:

    My favorite ice cream flavor, by far, is Mint Chocolate Chip. There’s nothin better!

    Wow, what a fantastic giveaway! I absolutely LOVE homemade mango gelato. Seriously. I can’t get enough of it.

  194. Elise says:

    Congrats on the one year!!!! Its a real delectable pleasure reading you!

    I really wanted to have this ice cream maker for a long time…this red one!!!!! But i always waited…Of course i enter the contest :-)

    My favorite ice cream is hard for me to say, because my heart always love nutty or coconut flavor one day and the other wants coffee or chocolate, but the best i had in my entire life was Tiramisu flavor. Yum…

    Congratulations on your anniversary! I’m crossing my fingers for this prize. My favorite flavor of ice cream is probably chocolate chip cookie dough with a caramel swirl (or brown rice syrup). I also once had an arborio rice ice cream once in Italy (in my pre-vegan years) that was amazing and I want to try to figure out how to make it.

    I would love to win that! Right now I’m loving pumpkin pie ice cream!

    Peace.

  203. I’d make my favorite strawberry ice cream and drizzle chocolate into the machine at the last minute so it gets all crunchy and flaky in the ice cream…

  204. Grace says:

    I realllllly want to win this giveaway! I’ve been wanting an ice cream maker for SO long! My favorite ice cream flavor is Banana Walnut :)

    My favorite ice cream flavor is Blue Moon. I would love to try to make a vegan version!

  213. Verity Kae says:

    Happy Birthday!!

    Id love to win the icecream maker. My favourite icecream is sweet pistachio flavour. (Weird I know.) But I’d love to create a pumpkin pie type icecream. =]

  214. larissa norman says:

    I would love to be entered!
    chocolate chip mint is my favorite!

  215. I’d love to have my own ice cream maker so I could whip up my own version of cookie dough ice cream–of which there is no suitable vegan kind on the market. (The ones I have tried have about 3 pieces of cookie dough in an entire carton–boo!!) However my fave ice cream flavor ever has to be mint chocolate chip or pistachio. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  216. Emma says:

    Goodness that ice cream maker is beautiful! So swanky! It would most definitely find a happy home in my kitchen!
    I think my fave would have to be coconut probably although there are lots of recipes I’ve got saved for when I have an ice cream maker (oatmeal, sweetcorn..!)
    Happy blogiversary :)

  217. Leah says:

    I would love an ice cream maker! I love to make ice cream with lemongrass! Vanilla lemongrass, ginger lemongrass… anything with that tasty little reed! Yum!

  218. Cristy says:

    Happy Anniversary!

    This is a great give-a-way, so I’m putting in my entry. My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip. Though really almost anything with chocolate really tickles my fancy. :)

  219. Chris Siegel says:

    Love your blog! You are so sweet to give one of your fans an ice cream maker!

    I just saw a recipe for vegan pumpkin ice cream on another vegan blog and it looked so amazing – I was hinting to my husband that I would love a an ice cream maker for Christmas. :) Since he probably wasn’t paying any attention to me it would be nice to win one!

  220. Dana says:

    Happy birthday to your blog! Even though I discovered it recently, I appreciate all of the recipes and effort you’ve put into it.

    Ice cream maker? Yes, please!

    Favorite ice cream? Any kind with coconut, almonds, and chocolate or peanut butter involved. Mmm.

  221. Chrissy says:

    My favorite ice-cream is mint chocolate chip, which I have done with out since becoming vegan. I’d love an ice-cream maker and I’d love to figure out how to replicate my old favorite!!!

  222. Josiane says:

    Happy first anniversary to Manifest Vegan, and best wishes for the coming year!

    Thank you for celebrating by offering us a chance at winning this lovely ice cream maker! I assure you it would be well loved in my kitchen. :) It’s hard to choose just one favorite ice cream flavor, so I’ll go with the first one that popped into my mind: chai! (and now I’m craving it…) The cool thing with an ice cream maker is that you can whip up any and all of the flavors you can dream of!

  223. Amy says:

    I have the food processor that matches that ice cream maker! Red is my favorite color so I’d love to get a little set going.

    My favorite (pre-vegan) ice cream flavor was grapenut custard, but I’ve yet to have a vegan version, so I think I need to concoct it on my own!

  224. Amey says:

    oooh, fun! I’d love a fancy little red ice cream maker! My favorite flavor is probably mint chip… but I’m not too picky!

  225. Liza says:

    I love plain old vanilla but I also really love cinnamon! I would love to have an ice cream maker, that would be way easier then coffee cans and dry ice!

  226. Maureen says:

    I love French Vanilla and there should be some caramel in it somewhere to make it extra good.

    Happy birthday

  227. Nichole says:

    What an awesome giveaway! Most of the time I go for mint chip or chocolate peanut butter (the classics). However once fall hits I love pumpkin. I haven’t seen a dairy-free version, so I’ve gone without (except for baked goods), but I would love to make my own!

  228. Diana says:

    Happy Birthday! I have this ice cream maker and it is awesome!

  229. Martine says:

    Happy Birthday !!!! what a cute cupcake !
    I’d love to have an ice-cream maker !!! My fav is dark chocolate with a swirl of rasberry but homemade frozen yogourt sound Yummy :)

  230. Kimberly Doss says:

    I would love to win the ice cream maker. My favorite flavor is mint chocolate chip

  231. Gabby says:

    Happy birthday! Your blog has truly been a godsend since I discovered I had a wheat intolerance!

    I would love an ice cream maker and I have a tie for my favourite ice cream flavour: green tea and mint chocolate chip :)

  232. Laura says:

    Happy Birthday and thanks for making me hungry with your blog for the past year!

    I would love to win that ice cream maker so I could work on veganizing Rocky Road and Moose Tracks ice cream. If I had a free ice cream maker, I wouldn’t feel so guilty about consuming 5,000 empty calories every day.

  233. Sandy says:

    Ooooo I’ve wanted an ice cream maker forever! I love homemade vanilla and pretty much all fruit ice creams. I’d love to try to make a grapefruit sorbet!

  234. KarmaLily says:

    Usually I like something classic and basic, like a super-creamy vanilla with a coconut milk base, but recently I was fortunate enough to try Coconut Bliss’s Cherry Amarreto and it was incredible!

  235. Hannah says:

    Ooh, I’d love an ice cream maker. Chocolate cherry is my favorite. Peppermint comes in close second because that is what I had every single birthday as a kid, and I’m dying to make my own this upcoming birthday. :)

  236. Julia says:

    Cookies n’ cream… hands down. Love it!

  237. Oh. And i am definably making those cupcakes before fall is over!

  238. Tamara says:

    How sweet of you! I would love to be entered, and my current favorite flavor is either cookie dough or oreo – hard to choose. :-)

  239. Rachel says:

    I’ve never had homemade vegan ice cream! How much fun that would be :) I think my favorite flavor thus far had to be carrot cake yum!

  240. First off, i just want to say i am a big fan of the site. One already? It has been so fun, the time passes quickly.

    And secondly, i have been wanting an ice cream maker for so long but have never found an affordable one at the store. With bills , working, and trying to open up a new business money has been tight. So i hope to win!

    Now favorite ice cream flavor? Such a tough decision. Probably a german chocolate one with peanut butter (using coconut milk!).

    Again even if i don’t win, thanks for everything! And happy birthday!

    -Andrew “VegMuffinMan” Morrison-

    Happy birthday to one of my very favorite blogs! It has certainly been a wonderful year of recipes and musings and I look forward to the year ahead.

    I already have a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so I’ll leave the giveaway to someone who doesn’t. What a generous way for you to celebrate, though!

    xoxo

  245. Jaclyn says:

    I would love to be entered into your giveaway! That machine looks stunning, and I love the sound of making my own vegan ice cream from scratch! My favourite flavour has got to be mint chip ;)
